Ranum Boarding school

Volunteering projects

project description

As Ranum Efterskole College has an international profile, the main task of the EVS volunteers will be partly to strengthen the integration between the international and Danish students and partly to prepare students who go abroad for their intercultural experience and encounter. The specific activities and events will be created and developed in close cooperation between the EVS volunteers and the staff of the school.

The volunteers will be part of the special fellowship that exists on a Danish Efterskole and Folk High School. As the volunteers are older than the students, they will also be positioned as leaders, persons of authority and consultants, and this is a great opportunity for the EVS volunteers to develop their pedagogical abilities and the ability to structure and plan events for others.
Being activate responsible adults on the travels will be among the tasks of the volunteers, along with presenting and helping international students to develop club activities.
